Maritime Payment Solutions’ ShipMoney has strengthened its foothold in the key Antwerp-Rotterdam-Amsterdam shipping range by joining forces with one of Rotterdam’s major port services companies.
It has entered into a strategic partnership with Nautilus Port Services (NPS) to introduce the most up-to-date payment systems for ship owners and managers to finally remove cash onboard ship and deliver real cost-savings for its crew and families.
The ShipMoney platform will significantly reduce the need for vessels to have cash onboard and will remove the time-consuming administration for both the ship owner and the Master. Furthermore, with the introduction of complementary services, ship’s crew will have access to a myriad of service offerings that will see them make considerable financial savings without having to leave their cabins.
Stuart Ostrow, ShipMoney President noted that he was very excited about the new strategic partnership with NPS expanding ShipMoney’s footprint in the European maritime market.
“NPS has a growing reputation across Europe for its unique customer centric agency services and we feel this partnership will complement each other’s enterprises,” he said.
Ron Meuldijk, Managing Director of NPS-Europe, said: “Our collaboration with ShipMoney had been driven by our clients’ desire to manage ‘cash free vessels’ while giving onboard crew members valuable exposure to e-commerce. Moreover, it will also play an important role in reducing HSSE concerns pertaining to handling cash in ports for which many ship owners worldwide are paying excessive fees.”
ShipMoney is a comprehensive maritime payments system that facilitates onboard payroll payments, employer and employee generated international remittances, money transfers and onboard expense payments through a singular integrated payments platform.
